HuffPost: Is 30 Too Old to Start Again?

I was a bit nervous about writing this one. Despite everything I’ve shared on my blog over the last year and a half – fertility, periods, dating, the works – it somehow feels more personal talking about my career and why I decided to do an unpaid internship at the grand old age of 30 (/31).

Anyway, here it is, my latest blog for the Huffington Post:
Is 30 Told Old to Start Again?

As always, let me know what you think, and Happy New Year. Laura xx

    Lauri, si podés darte el gusto hacelo! No hay un único camino a seguir ni un camino de felicidad perfecta. Optar por algo siempre implica dejar de lado otras cosas aunque sea en forma momentánea.
    Hoy tenés que evaluar con la condiciones con las que contás: tu gusto, no tener un trabajo donde hacer carrera, no tener una familia a cargo (que requiere mucho tiempo y sostén económico). Hacé lo que te guste, ahora es el momento, más adelante van a surgir otras cosas, otra realidad y las condiciones para decidir pueden cambiar también.
    Besos!!!!

  2. 30, 40, even 50 – any age is the perfect age to start again when you’ve got the talent, experience and (perhaps) a little saved up to make that leap. I can’t see why more interns aren’t in their thirties. ~Catherine

  3. I ended up shifting career direction at 40 – with a baby on the way and while we were in the middle of buying a house. I went from a full-time corporate employee to a freelance trainer and consultant. Terrifying at the time, but it shook me out of a rut and I’ve never been happier.

    Too many people get trapped for the illusion of security.
